country? how to keep your own kids safe. ♪ and baby talk. is beyonce expecting a second child? the possible clue hubby jay z dropped from the stage. and good morning. we're going to get straight to the latest horror from the terrorist army known as isis. the victim this time, a british aid worker by the name of david haines. >> he had a wife and children. isis posting the horrific video on saturday and the condemnation was immediate and global. president obama, who is in the middle of trying to build a coalition to fight isis, calling this third public execution of a westerner, quote, barbaric. >> we've got team coverage this morning, and we start with abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross. brian, good morning to you, sir. >> reporter: well, good morning, dan. british security officials are in emergency session this
8:02 am
morning with the prime minister calling the beheading of british aid worker david haines pure evil. the victim was british, but the brutal video message was clearly aimed at the united states. it was the same desert setting, the same masked executioner with a british accent and the same horror. 44-year-old david haines was forced to kneel in an orange jumpsuit and read a script that laid the blame for his execution on prime minister david cameron. this morning, the prime minister denounced the murder of haines. >> david has been murdered in the most callous and brutal way imaginable by an organization which is the embodiment of evil. we will hunt down those responsible and bring them to justice no matter how long it takes. >> reporter: haines was the married father of two who served in the british military and went to syria as a civilian with a french aid group. haines was no stranger to the world's hot spots.
8:03 am
this was him 11 years ago when he served in croatia. >> many people want to return but don't know how and who to turn to. >> reporter: since his kidnapping a year and a half ago, his family has tried to find a way to gain his release. his teenage daughter posted this love letter in march. but britain made it clearno ransom would be paid. the u.s. has been conducting drone flights over raqqah looking for hostages or the areas where they carried out their executions. so far without success. one senior official told abc news this latest execution out in the open during the day is a sign that isis still feels it can carry out its barbaric medieval acts with impunity and u.s. officials say it still holds two young american aid workers and two more british citizen, one of whom appeared in this latest video described, dan, as the next victim. >> so four more families in anguish this morning. >> absolutely. >> brian, thank you. let's go to washington now and our chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz. martha, good morning. is it possible that this was
8:04 am
potentially a strategically unwise move on the part of isis. the white house, as we all know is trying to recruit countries to fight isis. so would this latest act of b barbarism make this easier? >> reporter: it sure seems like it, dan. it enrages the united states. it enrages the british. i think one of the reasons they do this is try to recruit more fighters. their violent jihad attracts people. we do not know why that is resonating so well but it does attract people so they try to paint themselves as the winners. look, we just killed a british citizen. we just killed two american citizens, and they think that will resonate with the kind of people who are attracted to them. >> well, that leads me to the question i also want to ask this morning. as we prepare to expand our military campaign here, there are some critics at home who argue that isis, the threat has been overhyped,
8:05 am
that they've not been a threat to the homeland. what is your view on that? >> well, you know this all started with defense secretary chuck hagel who said it was an imminent threat. i think what you hear from the administration and others in the counterterrorism world is that it is a potential threat, but they want to stop that potential threat to the homeland. they don't think there are any specific targets in the homeland. certainly they are a threat to westerners who are in the area as we have seen from the executions, and they would like to hit western targets, but most people don't think they are capable of going beyond that and hitting the homeland at this time, but i'll tell you, dan, the big worry is those lone wolves, someone down in the basement who is plotting an attack. >> that has been the worry for some time now. martha, thank you. and a reminder, martha will be hosting "this week" later this morning and she'll have much more on this breaking story including an interview with white house chief of staff, denis mcdonough, that's later this morning on "this week" right here on abc. paula, over to you.
8:06 am
>> we look forward to it. now to the nfl rocked by two explosive scandals. the vikings' adrian peterson arguably one of the most talented players in the league charged with child abuse and then there's ray rice released by the baltimore ravens seen on video punching his wife making his first public appearance since that scandal. abc's ryan smith is here with the latest. good morning, ryan. >> good morning, paula. it's game day in the nfl. so many, though, talking about the nfl's growing problem with domestic violence and as ray rice garnered support with his family by his side, prosecutors laid out their case against star running back, adrian peterson, for allegedly beating his son. >> adrian peterson -- >> reporter: today minnesota vikings star running back adrian peterson won't be in uniform as prosecutors claim he was criminally negligent in striking his 4-year-old son with a branch. >> we take all allegations of abuse against children very seriously. >> reporter: yesterday the football star taking a private jet to surrender to authorities in montgomery county smiling for this mug shot. in jail for less than 30 minutes before being released and returning to minnesota on the
8:07 am
same private plane. and while peterson's attorney says he was simply disciplining his child, prosecutors say the nfl star may have gone too far. >> a grand jury having indicted this case looked at the injuries that were inflicted upon this child and determined that that discipline was not reasonable. >> reporter: charged with one count of injury to a child, peterson now faces up to two years in prison. he has not yet entered a plea and the nfl reviewing peterson's case under its personal conduct policy. >> if family violence and domestic violence is going to be addressed, then the parenting issue does come into play. >> reporter: this as ray rice made his first public appearance yesterday since being indefinitely suspended by nfl commissioner roger goodell here with his wife and baby daughter attending his former high school's varsity football team. he didn't speak to reporters but exchanged hugs with his former coach and other supporters on
8:08 am
the surveillances. domestic violence, now dominating the conversation for a league hoping to focus on the game. but the cloud cast by both cases some say may not lift any time soon. >> the national football league realizes this is another very sensitive issue when you're talking about the innocence of a child, and the standard that's going to be established is going to be elevated and probably changed even in the policies. >> now, ryan, there are going to be some protests outside stadiums today, but at the end of the day, fans are still going to watch, so will the nfl feel pressure to amend it's policy? >> i think so. this is a huge black eye on the nfl. they've got to do something. the question is what can they do? and it's not just about the nfl. the nfl players association has to be a part of this too, they are the players' representatives so a policy that just says if you do one thing you're out of the league even before your case goes forward, that might be a problem for the players association even though both sides want to make a change, so i think there will be changes. i just think it's going to be tough to make them happen and the question is when because the public wants change now.
8:09 am
>> they do. a lot of entities involved. ryan, thank you. >> ryan, thank you. >> now to hillary clinton who's long been coy about whether she's running for president in 2016, but today she is taking an action that may speak louder than words. she and her husband bill are making a visit to iowa, that key early caucus state so we sent abc's jon karl to des moines to cover it. jon, good morning to you. at this point i know she's not there to campaign for herself. she's there to campaign for local candidates, but can there be much doubt at this point that she's going to run? >> reporter: oh, i would say not really, dan. i'd put it at 99%. look, she has set up a political operation. she has done nothing to discourage the grassroots organizers that are preparing for a run. she's frozen out other democrats. if she is not running, dan, this is the biggest head fake in the history of presidential campaign politics. >> right. it would be perhaps a move to boost book sales but it'll be an elaborate one at that. this is her first visit to iowa
8:10 am
since 2008 when she lost in a surprise upset to senator barack obama. she has called that experience excruciating. has she learned any lessons since then, you think? >> reporter: that's right, more than 2,000 days since she set foot in this state. i wouldn't look for lessons, evidence of lessons learned today. she's only going to be on the ground for a couple of hours, but, dan, there's also a question of what the real threat would be to her in iowa. you know, the -- one of the only other big names you hear about talking about running is joe biden. he'll be in iowa next week. but biden came in fifth in those 2008 caucuses. guess what, he got less than 1% of the vote. so, you know, i wouldn't be -- she doesn't have a lot to worry about here in iowa, at least there's no evidence of it yet. >> i guess. all that remains, to see if that 1% prediction you just made comes true. jon karl, we'll hear more from you later on "this week." but thank you for now. health alert. the enterovirus d68 virus spreading rapidly throughout the country.
8:11 am
it's now on the east coast sending kids to the hospital. all told, it is confirmed or suspected in 21 states. abc's dr. richard besser with the latest on this outbreak. and, dr. besser, good morning to you. i know so many of my friends, parents, are very scared right now. the symptoms mirror the common cold. how do you know your kids have enterovirus especially since there's not a definitive test? >> you won't know unless they get into a bit of trouble. and the kids getting into trouble are those who have asthma, wheezing in the past. children who may have been premature. you have to know those signs to look for difficulty of breathing. it may be you're looking at their belly and see it pulling in hard or having trouble eating or speaking or maybe some blueness around the lips. if you're seeing that and starts like a cold, you want to get to the emergency room right away. they may not have a test but they'll be able to see your child has trouble and may need some help. >> let's talk about prevention. we know prevention because you tell us all the time is washing
8:12 am
your hands but when it comes to treatment, what can you do if you believe your child has this? >> well, you want to get them some help because there's medicine that they can give your child that will open up those airways and help the breathing. it's the same medicine used for children who have asthma but when i was in the emergency room this week in st. louis, they were giving it to children who didn't have asthma and you could just see them turn around. their airways would open up. some of them could leave the emergency room. some had to stay but the medicine helps a lot and i want to make a point about the hand washing and give parents a bit of relief. do your best. you're not going to be able to prevent every cold. you're not going to be able to prevent every illness. you'll cut down on it but it will help a lot but if your child gets it, it doesn't mean you're a bad parent. it's really hard with little kids to keep their hands cleaned. >> we are talking little kids but adults and older children not immune from contracting, as well. dr. richard besser, thank you so much. now a look at the other developing stories. for that we turn to ron claiborne. good morning, ron. >> hi there, good morning to you, paula and dan, dr. besser. good morning, everyone. we begin in california where hundreds of firefighters are battling a massive wildfire in triple-digit heat. dozens of families near the cleveland national forest have
8:13 am
been forced to evacuate their homes. right now nearly 400 homes are without power, and the flames are tearing through 1500 acres of dry canyon brush, and it's only about 10% contained. heat and smoke advisories in effect as temperatures may reach as high as 105 degrees fahrenheit in coming days. and overseas in north korea american matthew miller who has been detainedn that country since last april was tried and convicted sunday. just a short while ago sentenced to six years in a labor camp without any chance of appeal of that conviction he was accused of entering north korea illegally and trying to commit an act of espionage. and back in this country, a three-state manhunt under way for the suspect or suspects plural who ambushed a police barracks fatally shooting a veteran state trooper and injuring another trooper. after scouring the dense wooded area saturday, officials there now say they think whoever shot
8:14 am
the officers are no longer in that area. new york state and new jersey officials have joined in the massive search for the suspects. they say that the two troopers had no chance to defend themselves when they were attacked outside of that police barracks in blooming grove, pennsylvania, friday night. and in rome, wedding day as the vatican or at the vatican as pope francis presides over 20 weddings including couples that have been living together, some of whom have had children out of wedlock. the weddings are viewed at a further sign of the pope's determination to stress the importance of marriage and make the catholic church more inclusive. legendary golfer, australian golfer greg norman is recovering this morning after nearly cutting off his left hand with a chain saw by accident. norman now retired posted this photo from the hospital on instagram. on twitter he posted "working with a chain saw always be respectful of the unexpected." good advice if you're working with a chain saw, i suppose. earlier this month he posted this photo of himself on his property working with a chain saw.
8:15 am
and finally, a minnesota cat lover has built the ultimate feline fun house for his pets. his name is greg krueger, not john krueger, greg krueger not to be confused with paula's husband has been carving through his walls and building elaborate passageways like that one you see there. he's been doing this for 15 years. >> but we're only covering it now. >> 15 year, yeah. has four cats and they get to play in 100 yards of overhead. >> that's amazing. >> catwalks and several secret hideaways with lights and padding. krueger was diagnosed with asperger's at the age of 49. he says it is a blessing which has helped him stay focused. >> some people have train sets. some people have super houses. >> i know. getting any ideas there? >> i want one of those in my own house for adults. >> you can do it. >> he needs a reality show. i love it. >> that's really cool. >> yeah, it's very cool. >> it's very nice. >> thank you, ron. >> you could produce it, dan. >> i could produce it. i'm on my way. we have an animal story of a very different variety. it's about a 12-year-old boy who
8:16 am
fought off an alligator and survived. he went to the hospital with a leg wound and emerged with an incredible tale to tell. here's abc's marci gonzalez. >> it just happened way too fast. it was like a sneak attack. >> reporter: the attack so fast matthew kelly at first didn't realize what was pulling him underwater. >> i thought it was my dad playing around with me but it was actually an alligator. >> reporter: a ten-foot alligator latching on to the 12-year-old's leg while he was spearfishing with his dad in louisiana's lake pontchartrain last weekend. >> when i came up, i said, it got me, it got me, and my dad said, are you bit? are you bit? >> reporter: before his dad could get to him, matthew reacted claiming he grabbed the gator's mouth, and incredibly it let go. >> maybe he hit something sensitive. maybe he hit its eye. i'm not real sure why it let go. all i know is that he's the luckiest boy i know. >> reporter: lucky but still in some pain now home from the hospital with 50 stitches in his leg. evidence of how one little boy
8:17 am
took on a giant gator and won. >> i would call it a miracle, and i would say that he's a hero for fighting off an alligator and surviving. >> reporter: for "good morning america," marci gonzalez, abc news, new york. >> and we are just grateful that he is okay. and now to beyonce and jay z and to the rumor their love is on the rocks but now the rap mogul hinting that little blue ivy might be a big sister. sara has been looking into all the clues including a possible lyric from jay z. you're really good at interpretation so what's going on here? >> listen to me. in typical queen bey and jay z fashion, they could be hinting at a pregnancy leading us to believe are we getting ahead of our selves or is there a reason for her to be smiling from ear to here? beyonce baby buzz. rumors swirling around music's first couple after jay z allegedly changed the lyrics to a song in paris friday night on the last leg of their hugely
